Patient Experience Management
Improve patient care and increase practice revenue with comprehensive patient engagement.
Your patients are your most important resource
Independent practices have more demands for their time than ever before. When a practice becomes time constrained, one of the first things to breakdown is patient communications. This deterioration of the patient experience can be devastating to your practice when patients aren't properly scheduled, appointments are missed, eligibility is not verified, patient intake suffers, after-hours questions from patients don't get answered, prescriptions don't get renewed, claims can't be followed up, and so on. This culminates into wasted time for providers and staff, a poor patient experience and revenue loss for the practice.
In this patient driven healthcare landscape, an increased focus on patient experience is needed to better manage your precious time, improve care delivery and increase practice revenue. In order to be successful, patient experience management needs to be a responsibility shared by the entire practice. This can be daunting, but recent improvements in technology have made managing the end-to-end patient experience much easier.
Understanding the patient journey
Taking the perspective of the patient to empathize with their journey can be transformative for your practice. Due to the changing reimbursement landscape patients are more selective than ever about their healthcare. In order to respond to this shift practices need to think about the best ways to manage a positive end-to-end patient experience. Breaking the patient journey into a few different categories can make this process more easily manageable.
A patients first impression of your practice will be made online. It is critical that this initial engagement sets the bar for the patient experience that you are looking to deliver.
A positive online reputation is essential for practice growth. Surveys show 84% of patients use online reviews to evaluate providers.
Set your practice and patients up for success by streamlining your pre-visit process with online patient scheduling, online patient intake and automated appointment reminders.
Maintaining a clear line of bi-directional communication with your patients can improve patient satisfaction, adherence to care instructions and patient outcomes.
